Product Description

Young Stephen Hawkings can scan the whole night sky with the Fusion Science 700mm Reflector Telescope with Equatorial Mount. The equatorial mount makes this set ideal for kids who are serious about astronomy. The powerful 525x magnifying telescope is fixed to the mount, allowing the telescope to remain trained on any celestial body as the earth rotates. This essential piece of kit uses fine-point adjustment across 2 axes: ascension (RA) and declination (DEC) —basically up and down, and left and right. The degrees are marked on both axes, creating a clear framework to start exploring the night sky.

Helpful hints for getting the most out of your telescope -

1. Practice -Practice setting up you telescope when you are indoors and have lots of light. Then take your telescope outside. Viewing objects through closed or open windows is not recommended. Let your telescope adjust to the outside temperature as sudden changes in temperature cancause the lens to fog up.

2. Pick the right spot-Choose the darkest spot available with the widest view of the sky you can find. Moonless nights are best for viewing the night sky as moonlight washes out deep-sky objects. Put the telescope on a flat surface.

3. Choosing your eyepiece- Start out with the lowest power eyepiece. This will give you a wider view of the sky so you can more easily find things. Once you have found an object you want to focus in on you can change to the higher power eye piece to get a closer look. Remember the lowest numbers have the highest magnification. Always be sure to remove the dust cap from the lens.

4. Remember to focus- Sometimes focus is hard to achieve especially at the higher magnifications or when viewing conditions are not ideal. When this is the case the best way to focus is to slowly adjust the focuser knob until you have just passed best focus, then back up to the best focus.

EU Warning:   Not suitable for children under the age of 3 years due to small parts which could cause a choking hazard.
